What you'll do

If you see any dates that you want to book but my calendar shows no availability, dont hesitate to contact me. We might be able to work something out I will meet the guest at the beach, make introductions, have a conversation about the guest's experience and goals, and then begin the lesson. I will first ensure that my guest knows about ocean safety, including what a rip current is and what to do if they encounter one, and surfing etiquette. Surf boards are provided, unless the guest wants to use their own. I'll talk about the surf board they are using, what the different parts of the surfboard are and what they're for, and answer any questions they might have. I will then demonstrate how to surf using a instructed technique. I'll have the guest practice popping up on the board while the board is on the sand, giving pointers on technique, stance and foot placement. Once they feel comfortable popping up on the sand we'll go into the water. This often takes about 30 minutes or less to complete. The rest of the hour and a half will be in the water where I'll coach the guest on paddling, board stance, and catching a wave. When the guest is comfortable, I will push them into a wave. Most guests have caught their first wave with this instruction. Let me teach you, too.

I am CPR and Life Guard certified. I have surfed Wrightsville beach since I was young. I have also surfed all over the globe.
